Topshop MA1 Burgundy Bomber Jacket With Jeans
I’m excited to say… it’s officially Autumn! I explained how excited I was about the new season in my Autumn wish list post and I think this outfit marks the first of my Autumn looks for 2016! The days are getting a little chillier now and I can feel that brisk, sharp coolness in the air in the mornings, so it’s definitely here! I do have one outfit left to share with you which is more Summery, but I wanted to post this one first to say hello to the new season already. So first, lets talk about the location as we found an old church nearby which had one of the most gorgeous, carved wooden doors that I’ve seen. Somehow we have never noticed this door before as it’s around the side of the church, not at the front, so that would explain it, but given how rich and golden the wood colour was, it made the perfect backdrop for this outfit and the colour palette.
I was wearing my new Topshop MA1 Lined Burgundy Bomber Jacket that I mentioned to you I purchased a few weeks ago. When I saw how gorgeous it was online, I did wait a couple of weeks first to make sure that I liked it, then I even looked in store to find it but my Topshop didn’t have it, so I finally ordered it online. I actually bought the Topshop MA1 Bomber Jacket last year in the Khaki Green colour (same as Adam’s below) but as you know I obsess over burgundy, so it made sense for me to get this colour. This Bomber Jacket is also lined with faux fur, so it’s incredibly warm and cosy which makes all the difference. I’ve worn it so many times already, I can’t get enough of it. It’s the jacket I’m reaching for when I go out now. It does run a little bit big, so I got a UK 6 in it.
I paired my Topshop MA1 Bomber Jacket with my Levi’s Skinny Jeans in Black, a simple ASOS T-Shirt and my ALLSAINTS Elmore Boots. Adam actually bought me these boots for my birthday as they were in the sale and even though we ordered the full leather version, the suede/leather combination turned up and it was actually a happy accident. I like these ones a lot! The heel isn’t too high so they are easy to walk in and they pair well with black jeans. They are sold out, but these ALLSAINTS Xavier Boots are almost identical. They do tend to run small so I had to take my larger size of a 40/UK 7 in them. Given that bomber jackets are quite masculine, I think pointed, heeled boots are a perfect option to dress this type of jacket up. What’s your opinion on that? I’d love to hear your thoughts on my outfit and what you think of bomber jackets.

As I mentioned above, Adam has the same Topshop MA1 Bomber Jacket but in Khaki. He had been looking for a bomber jacket that was really well fitted, not too oversized, and nice looking and unfortunately, no men’s versions came close as they are always so big. I suggested that he tries on a Topshop one since it looks like a unisex, masculine jacket anyway and he already loved how mine looked. He opted for the size UK 10 in the Tall version so it was long enough, and I think it fits him amazingly. I would say he looks better in his Bomber Jacket than I do in mine! Adam has his own men’s fashion blog now called ‘Your Average Guy‘ (click name) which focuses on wearable men’s clothing, featuring his own outfits too, which I shoot since he shoots for me. I would love for you to check out his blog and you can see the full version of this Topshop MA1 Bomber Jacket outfit of his on his menswear blog too!
